Hello all, a little story about my Pacer Carrera. I bought this guitar from a forum bro (SDRM17) in the old forum in April of 2014. Ever since then I've been meaning to get it refretted, but I've been putting it off for years, over 3 years in fact. But it's finally time I send it in for a refret.

Inside this case lies my Pacer Carrera... all ready for the trip to the guitar technician.

I was going to go with these frets... but at the last minute I had a change of mind and ordered something else which came in today...

Image

So I'm gonna go ahead with this... and hopefully it turns out great. :headbang :toast

Jescar is actually made by Wagner, same stuff I'm using. Top-notch german quality :headbang I personally prefer jumbo height over medium, but that's a matter of taste.

Better late than never. I miss dave. Hung out at his house a few times and held the Carerra before you bought it. Hope he's doing well.

How long does a refret take you?

Ok, I thought $300 US... 190 sounds plausible.

I do it all manually, so it takes a whole day basically. Most of it for sanding and polishing.
